Increasing Reliability with Substation Monitoring
Renewable Energy is essential for the future of the power grid. Power system reliability is vital and maintaining a continuous power flow is key. Monitoring renewable balance of plant electrical assets is an affordable way to increase the reliability of your power supply.
Manage Assets Across Renewable Energy Infrastructure
Online condition monitoring reduces the risk of failure by increasing situational awareness. Monitors evaluate the assets across projects (switchgear, transformers, circuit breakers and more) and measure their performance to make sure everything is working properly. If something looks out of place, an alarm will notify you of the problem. This improves site uptime and generation availability.
Renewable Energy asset monitoring is easily managed on a visual dashboard to ensure ease of use.
Extend the Life of your Existing Power Assets
Replacing assets can be time consuming and costly if an unexpected problem occurs. Monitoring renewable energy assets is an easy way to get the most out of your power assets, keep your workplace safe, and make a plan for replacement as needed.
Power transformer at renewable energy plants can be subjected to excessive and harmful harmonics. This can significantly decrease the life of your transformers. Online monitoring is an affordable way to give you better visibility into the condition of your assets.

Monitoring Renewable Assets
Switchgear is a key asset in the substation and is links directly to the reliability of the power supply. Monitoring is easy to implement and will increase reliability, efficiency and safety in the workplace.
Setting up proper communications is essential to the success of online monitoring. We have an option that is affordable, easy to install and secure. Our monitors have a variety of communication protocols available for your convenience.
Online circuit breaker monitoring continuously evaluates the conditions of a breaker. Conditions which can lead to breaker failure are identified in their incipient stages which allows time to evaluate the breaker and take corrective action before a catastrophic event occurs.
